Hello everyone

Dear old Hugo has launched his latest creation, his "penis cell phone", in spanish "el vergatario". This is not a joke.

Even Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez couldn't keep the smirk off of his face when he announced the debut of the world's cheapest cell phone. At only $15, Chavez boasted that the new phone developed by the government came complete with a camera, internet access, an FM radio and MP3 and MP4 players. But what brought a smile to el presidente's face during the announcement was the phone's name, "Vergatario," which is derived from local Venezuelan slang for "penis."

Chavez made a series of subtle jokes throughout the press conference playing on the slang terminology, such as "Whoever doesn't have a Vergatario is nothing." He then proceeded to shamelessly call his mother from his new penis phone

See for yourselves:

OH darn, and I was hoping it would actually look like a little penis.

Now that would have been funny.

That is funny right there. I don't care who you are.

I think I'd rather have la chimba than el vergatario in my pocket.

Wait till he finds out that the engineers overcranked the vibrate feature. Soon all housewives in Venezuela will be clamoring for the "El Vegetario". I wonder if they charge by the minute for that?

Lol! Does she need batteries too?

Wonder how mamacita felt about him calling her on his wee, wee phone.

Kind of puts a new twist to the phrase "stick it in your ear".

Rather diminutive phone, yes? Girthsome though. Probably comes with a little coat and hat.

Well, you can expect just about anything from Colonel Chavez, anything. I find him to be a disgrace to Venezuela, but what seems almost unbelievable to me is that almost 60% of Venezuelans support him.

Poll: 59% of Venezuelans back Chavez

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Hugo Chavez remains popular among nearly two-thirds of Venezuelans after winning a February referendum removing limits on re-election, and he's feeling emboldened, a private pollster said Tuesday.
The socialist leader's popularity stood at 59% in March, just slightly down from the 61% recorded in February, according to a March 20-30 survey of 2,000 people by the Caracas-based pollster Datanalisis.

Results of the survey, which had a margin of error of 2.7 percentage points, weren't unveiled until this week because a group of businesses that paid for the poll had not authorized its release to the public.

Datanalisis said the latest figure is up from 51% in January, 2008

The way the cellphone is being promoted is funny, but I am not surprised that Hugo Chavez has the support of 60% of Venezuelan people. He is an outstanding and heroic defender of the people of Venezuela from the machinations of the globalist oligarchy. Everywhere they go they corrupt local leaders and create poverty and social injustice.

You can read all about how it is done in Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins. Chavez is resisting this kind of exploitation of his country. Most people who don't like him have a vested interest in selling out to the economic rapists.

The following is Part 1 of a wonderful video about the failure of a Washington supported coup to get rid of Chavez. The film crew had unprecedented backstage access to Chavez and his cabinet when the coup attempt erupted and were able to film things that the public never gets to see in situations like this. It is called "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised".

That video is propaganda imho, and poorly done btw. I have always wondered why foreigners fall in love with pseudo revolutionary morons like Chavez, I guess ignorance is bliss.

Here is the real Hugo for your viewing enjoyment.

Do a little research, it really doesn´t hurt.
